      Such a fun problem you guys have been discussing. Greg, didn't you have a Z layout on a G flatcar?

       

      Anyway, I've tried to hold back from posting this, but now in a moment of weakness I am doing so.

       

       

      Choke!

      Did you mean what you said? Z is bigger than TT? I think you meant to say "T" scale, not "TT" which is closer to HO.

      TT is 1:120

      Z is 1:220

      T is 1:450

      oh now this is opening a very large genie out of a bottle, which may never be shoved back inside. I remember one RR I toured here a few years ago had I think it was a Z scale "g scale garden RR" on a raised platform behind one of the houses. MUST     NOT     LOOK     INTO     THE    LIGHT, stay on the main track, avoid the rabbit hole.

      Check out TT. Would make a very nice garden railroad. Z is big. TT comes out almost perfect for g scale in g scale.

       

      Greg, I meant TT at least at the time. But What I really meant was T. Thanks for the clarification

      Yes TTs and trains go together.

      But What I really meant was T.

      Is T-scale still available?  I recall the original Japanese manufacturer made a model ride-on 'park' train using their diesel and some modified flatcars, but it was for O-scale.  Can't find any trace of it now.

      I have several N scale passenger cars from when I was an N scaler. But I am now wondering about locomotives. Can you still buy regular locomotives now adays? Seems like everything is DC.

      Ron, DCC locomotives will run on DC.

      Have no idea the availability of it. I never got any farther than just day dreaming about it.
